March 5th, 1994. One of the greatest defensive fighters of all time, James Toney makes the 2nd defense of his IBF World Super Middleweight Title against Tim Littles aka “The Doctor of Style”. Both fighters were undefeated at the time of this bout.

Prefight records; Toney 41(27)-2, Littles 24(15)-0.

In May 1991, Toney rallied from behind the scorecards to score a stunning 11th round knockout over then unbeaten Michael Nunn to garner the IBF World Middleweight Championship.

Between June 1991 and August 1992, Toney successfully defended his IBF Crown 6 times.

In February 1993, Toney decimated Iran Barkley over 9 rounds to bag the IBF World Super Middleweight Title in one of his best performances. 7 months after this win, he outpointed Tony Thornton over 12 rounds in his first defense.

His second title defense was set to be against similarly undefeated Tim Littles who had commendable wins over Antoine Byrd & Frankie Liles.

As for Toney, he had beaten notable oppositions in Glenn Wolfe, Dave Tiberi, Tony Thornton, Iran Barkley, Tim Littles, Glenn Wolfe, Merqui Sosa, Doug DeWitt, Reggie Johnson, Michael Nunn & Mike McCallum.

Note: His victory over Tiberi was a highly disputed decision as most observers thought Toney clearly lost.

For the first 6 minutes, both fighters fought a good tactical fight and each man arguably bagged 1 round apiece.

In the third frame, Toney knocked down Littles and followed up with a barrage to finish him but an accidental clash of heads occurred towards the end of the round. It resulted in a very bad cut above his left eye

Toney was given 3 more minutes by the ringside physician before the bout will be ruled a TD.

Sensing the urgency, Toney rallied for the kill as the 4th round began and scored 3 more knockdowns en route to a stoppage by referee Pat Russell to retain his IBF World Super Middleweight Championship as well as his undefeated record.

The 4 knockdowns suffered by Littles were the very first 4 knockdowns of his pro career.
